This property has different kinds of rooms, this review is only for the bayfront king room. These are cute little bungalows reminiscent of row houses. Room size is not very big but spacious enough for two adults and an infant with a crib. Bed is comfortable, but most especially the pillows!!! Pillows got me hooked that I peeked at the...

This was our second stay here and the service and accommodations were A++. This is not a chain establishment and it shows. The staff is always helpful from the front desk, the restaurant staff and service people. Great location for getting around to all san diego sites. Lovely location.

Perfect location. We were close to SeaWorld, all the Mission Beaches, Belmont Family Fun Center and many restaurants in Pacific Beach. Hotel was very clean and staff very helpful. Hotel has an hour cruise around the bay every night for the guests for free. Lots of kayaking and watersports are also available at the hotel.

I've reviewed this resort/hotel multiple times and do stay here quite often as it is slowly becoming one of my favorite properties to explore. The service is beyond helpful and I appreciate that everyone, managers to landscapers, stop and say hello. It's a friendly environment that I...

It was incredible loved waking up on the bay. Rooms were excellent and the bed was very comfortable.The grounds are impeccable. Staff very friendly and smiling. We did not get to go on the Bahia Belle so that means a return trip.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Bahia Resort Hotel is a welcoming waterfront property located on a 14-acre picturesque peninsula in San Diego’s scenic Mission Bay. Featuring spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and lush tropical gardens as well as friendly service and comfortable accommodations, Bahia Resort Hotel is the ideal destination for an authentic Southern California beach getaway. Impressive accommodations are key at the Bahia; guests may choose between our deluxe studios and suites, each with its own balcony or patio and a full range of amenities. Further room options include kitchenettes, direct access to the beach and views of the sparkling bay and our expansive tropical gardens. At Bahia Resort Hotel we ensure you receive all the comforts and amenities needed to enjoy your vacation. Staying at the Bahia grants guests easy access to an array of dining options, including our signature restaurant Cafe Bahia, which offer international cuisine served amid this indoor-outdoor tropical paradise. At our Moroccan-inspired Tangier Lounge, guests enjoy crafty drinks alongside a crackling fireplace and live piano bar. Beyond the Bahia, seemingly countless options offering an array of culinary experiences are just minutes away. For those seeking to spend their vacation on the water, Bahia Resort Hotel boasts an assortment of options. Headlining these choices is the Bahia Belle, an 1860s-era sternwheeler that tours guests around the bay nightly. Step back in time and enjoy a colorful sunset and views of the bay’s playful seals from the top deck, then prepare to kick up your heels as the vessel becomes a vibrant nightlife destination with live entertainment and a full-service bar. Additional nearby water activities include sailing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, surfing and more though nobody will blame you for simply relaxing on our soft sand beaches or at our sparkling pool. Back on land, the Bahia boasts a fitness center, kids’ arcade, tennis courts and bicycle and Segway rentals. Within walking distance guests can also explore Belmont Park, an oceanfront amusement park featuring the Great Dipper, a wooden roller coaster and designated historic landmark built in 1925. Take in the picturesque views of the Pacific Ocean during a leisurely stroll on the boardwalk, go rock climbing, or play miniature golf in this popular beachfront locale. Traveling further afield is a breeze, as the Bahia’s location is ideal for those seeking to experience San Diego’s major attractions. The Bahia Resort Hotel is located directly across from SeaWorld and is within 10 miles from the world famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Downtown’s Gaslamp District and the San Diego International Airport. The Bahia Resort Hotel is owned and operated by Evans Hotels, a San Diego-based hospitality group that also includes the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa and The Lodge at Torrey Pines. The Bahia is a reflection of all that “America’s Finest City” has to offer ‒ from year-round perfect weather and soft sandy beaches to dazzling Pacific Ocean sunsets ‒ and we look forward to helping you create your picture perfect Southern California getaway. ... more   less
